“[Funding received] represents a significant step towards commercialization of our LaparoGuard technology,” said Mitch Wilson, President & COO of Mariner Endosurgery. “Mariner’s computer-assisted platform provides augmented visualization for surgeons during minimally invasive general, gynecological and urological surgical procedures.”

Mariner Endosurgery develops and commercializes innovative computer assisted medical devices for future-facing laparoscopic surgeries. Their platform LaparoGuard is a novel soft-tissue surgical navigation platform that augments visualization during laparoscopic surgeries, enhancing the safety profile of laparoscopic surgery to assist surgeons in delivering a superior quality of care to their patients.

Embark Funding helps place a young professional (aged 22-29) with an Ontario-based technology venture to accomplish specific goals or milestones. Embark Funding is funded through the Youth Business Acceleration Program (BAP) to support entrepreneurs in the ONE network. BAP is funded by the Government of Ontario, and delivered and managed by MaRS.

NRC-IRAP maintains formal and informal relationships to extend and complement the capabilities of NRC-IRAP. These relationships help to strengthen the innovation support system in Canada in a way that benefits small and medium-sized enterprises.
